Our Exclusive Honey Pot Lip Balm Recipe for You!

Our Exclusive Honey Pot Lip Balm Recipe for You!

Do you love a good DIY recipe? We're excited to share something special with you: our exclusive Honey Pot Lip Balm recipe.

As enthusiasts of natural skincare, we believe in the power of simple, effective ingredients. This recipe combines the nurturing benefits of honey to create a lip balm that moisturises, protects, and heals.

It's our way of saying thank you for your continued support. Let's explore the beauty of nature together, starting with your very own homemade lip balm.

First, let's look at each ingredient. 

  1. Beeswax:

    • Provides a protective barrier on the lips, helping to seal in moisture without clogging pores.
    • Contains vitamin A, which supports cell reconstruction and health.
    • Offers anti-inflammatory properties, helping to soothe irritated skin.
  2. Shea Butter:

    • Rich in vitamins A, E, and F, shea butter moisturizes deeply, promoting skin elasticity and providing anti-aging benefits.
    • Offers natural protection against UV radiation due to its cinnamic acid content.
    • Has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe and heal dry, cracked lips.
  3. Coconut Oil:

    • Deeply moisturizes the skin, making it soft and supple.
    • Has antimicrobial properties, thanks to its lauric acid content, which can help protect the lips from bacterial infections.
    • Rich in fatty acids, it helps in repairing the skin's barrier and reduces moisture loss from the skin.
  4. Olive Oil:

    • Packed with antioxidants, including vitamins A and E, olive oil helps protect the skin from premature aging and free radical damage.
    • Moisturizes by penetrating deeply into the skin without clogging pores, providing long-lasting hydration.
    • Has anti-inflammatory properties, which can soothe irritation and calm redness in the skin.
  5. Honey:

    • Acts as a natural humectant, drawing moisture into the skin, which helps to keep the lips hydrated and soft.
    • Contains antioxidants that protect the lips from environmental stressors.
    • Offers natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, aiding in the healing of dry or cracked lips and preventing infections.

Together, these ingredients create a synergistic blend that not only moisturises and protects the lips but also offers healing and anti-aging benefits, making your DIY Honey Pot Lip Balm a luxurious treat for your lips.

Let's get to the recipe! Simply measure out equal parts of each of the 5 ingredients.

How much of each ingredient? That all depends on how big of a batch you want. If you're making it for friends and family, start with 1/8th cup of each ingredient. Just for you? Try 1 tablespoon of each. The important part is to have equal parts. 


  1. In a double boiler, combine the beeswax, olive oil, and coconut oil. Melt these ingredients together over medium heat until they are fully melted and blended.

  2. Once melted, remove the mixture from the heat. Stir in the shea butter until it integrates into the mixture and becomes creamy.

  3. To finish, gently mix in the honey. For the best results, use honey that is raw and sourced locally from your area.

  4. Carefully pour the mixture into empty containers, aiming for sizes between 15ml to 30ml, which are ideal for lip balm. Feel free to utilise any small containers you have available at home. Maybe something you can upcycle. If you want to purchase containers, check out these from Biome. 

  5. Let the mixture cool completely before securing the lid on the container.

Thanks to the absence of water in this recipe and the inclusion of honey, your lip balm can remain usable for 6 to 12 months, possibly even longer if you opt to use a spatula for dispensing, which helps to maintain its purity and extend its shelf life. Be sure to store below 25 degrees Celsius.

    This is beautiful thank you. What would you add to it to give it a tint? I’ve been searching out the perfect tinted balm.

    Love the info. Shea butter is the only substance I tolerate to moisturize my skin. You enlightened me to all of its benefits. I never even thought it might contain vitamins! I did wonder if it was UV protective. Now I know.
